Ok,a bad result from the Palace game and an even worse performance,nothing happened (except the goals) and we were unable to penetrate their defence and create good chances.That changed a bit when RVP came on,let him start the next game Please! On a good note Henry really showed that he wanted to win this game,and celebrated his goal well. About the bad form i think it`s only normal that when a team has played so many matches without losing and then suddenly do,it will take some time to recover that self esteem that was built up during the unbeaten run. Since we lost to Manure, a team we hate so much it must have been even worse than to lose against Villa or whoever. And what better way to restore that lost confidene and self belief trashing Spuds next week,that would surely brake this unlycky patch were in. Ok ok here`s my player ratings for todays game. Lehman:5 not much to do really but i`m always afraid when hes handling backpasses. Cygan 5 Decent but looks shaky at times,hopefully Senderos will step up and be our saviour soon Toure:6 did what he had to do nothing more Lauren:6 expected performance from Ralph quite good at the defensive work but not so good at going forward. Cole:7 Played more upfront in the beginning causing trouble for the palace defence and a solid defending as always. Freddie5 didn`t do much except assisting Henry for the goal,sloppy ball control,excused a little because of the wet pitch nut still not good. Cesc7: A good performance from our spanish wonderkid,almost almost plays it simple and safe which is good. Viera6:didn`t bossed the midfield like he should in these games,looks a little unfocused at times. Pires4: Comes nowhere and goes down to easy for my liking,his linking with Thierry was teriible. Reyes 5 Average..some bad shots on goal and only a few good passes and runs. Thierry 8 maybe seems like a high rating but i liked how he chased the ball down when losing it and not to meantion his 10th league goal. Bergie5 no time ralle to change the game but he was played out on the right and didn`t do much there. RVP showed that he`s a class player with some nice touches and almost gave us the winner..good skills and a good shot. Flamini played to little but looks pretty promising.
